Session fees include travel to your location within the Greater Montreal Area. Any location outside Montreal may be subject to an additional travel fee.

The session can last between 1-2 hours. Proofs will be posted between 2-3 weeks of the session. Around 75-100 images will be presented as proofs using a private password protected proofing website.

Session fees do NOT include any images; on USB key or otherwise. To obtain images, you have 4 digital packages to choose from. By signing the contract at the time of the session, the client commits to purchasing a digital package.

Digital packages starting at $275

After viewing the proofs, you have a choice of one of the following digital packages:

  • 25 images – $275 + tax
  • 50 images – $325 + tax
  • 75 images – $375 + tax
  • All images – $425 + tax

You will get a link to a password protected download site of the full resolution jpegs that you can share with family anywhere in the world, the site will be active for at least 30 days.

You will also receive a custom Vivian Doan Photography USB key that you can keep and reuse. It will contain two main image folders:

  1. JPEGS for printing in 300 DPI. Each image will be given to you in colour, black and white, and sepia. These files are large enough for poster printing.
  2. JPEGS for web in 72 DPI. Each image will be given to you in colour, black and white, and sepia. These files are smaller in size for sending in emails but are not suited for printing.

USB Keys are sent by the mail, hand delivered, or picked up by the client.

Rush pricing

Regular delays for proofing is 2-3 weeks depending on the season. If you require proofs faster than the regular delays, fees are $50 + tax for one business week, $100 + tax for one business day, by 5PM. This means if the session occurs on Friday, Saturday or Sunday, the proofs will be delivered on Monday by 5PM. The fees will be added to the invoice for the session fees and must be requested prior to the session.


If any retouching is required, the client must specifically ask for it. Fees start at $50 per hour, with a minimum of 1 hour charged. Some minor simple blemishes may be included in your digital package if retouching is quick and easy. But if it more elaborate such a smoothing out wrinkles, taming fly-away or grey hairs, or fixing clothing, the hourly rate will apply.

Vivian Doan Photography is going Eco-Friendly

My packaging reflects my respect for the environment and my love for planet earth. I don’t use big bags, fancy boxes, tissue paper and/or confetti. My goal is to have the carbon footprint for your photography session remain as small as possible and to keep things simple, recyclable or reusable.  For this reason, your photos will be presented on a lovely 8GB USB key so that you can both reuse it in the future and have a souvenir of our time together. You will also receive your receipts and contact sheets in PDF format.


Any location outside Montreal may be subject to an additional travel fee. The fee would be determined based on how far the location is and how long it would take to get there and back. Will be determined at the time of the booking. Any additional persons added to a photo session may incur extra fees of $25 per person. Any additional USB keys requested are $50 each. Any additional hours outside of the 2 hour portrait session may incur additional fees of $100 per hour. Events have different additional hour pricing.

All prices are subject to provincial and federal sales taxes. Method of payment accepted is by cheque, INTERAC email, or cash (exact change please). All prices are subject to change without prior notice.
